Can FIRST® LEGO® League teams improve the quality of life for seniors by helping them continue to be independent, engaged, and connected in their communities? In the 2012 SENIOR SOLUTIONSSM Challenge, over 200,000 children ages 9 to14, from more than 60 countries, will explore the topic of aging and how it may affect a person’s ability to maintain his or her lifestyle—solving issues like getting around, keeping in touch, and staying fit.
Teams will research obstacles and then suggest ways to improve the quality of life for the seniors affected. Teams will also build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® robot to solve a set of missions on an obstacle course. Throughout their experience, teams will operate under FLL’s signature set of Core Values.
Please note that these times are only tentative and are subject to change as the event approaches. Your teams will be notified with more information once you are assigned to a tournament location.
